It’s been a while since you’ve seen this one, but I was finally able to get it quilted while up at Mom’s
To refresh your memory, this quilt was made almost entirely from scraps leftover from my Welcome Home Jane quilt. (Jane is currently being raffled off to raise money for a local children’s charity).
It’s not as big as Jane, coming in a just under 60″ square, but it’s still a nice respectable lap size. I’m not usually a big fan of blue, but I love all the pretty, romantic prints in this one.
If I could go back and change anything, it would be to use a bolder pink for those friendship stars. The one I had is pretty, but it fades into the background more than I like. But… I was working from leftovers and stash, so I was limited in what I had to use.
The back may look familiar to you. It was a clearance bin find and I used it on the back of another quilt a couple of years ago. I had something like seven or eight yards of it, so I’ve really gotten some mileage out of it. I probably have enough left for another back on a small lap quilt.
The binding may jog your memory too. Another clearance find that’s really gone a long way. It was the back of a bee quilt, blocks in my SIL’s birthday quilt, nests on the chicken quilt, and now binding and blocks here.
And it can be yours, if you are so inclined. This beautiful quilt is available in the shop now.

Another beauty! Thanks for the refresher because I really don’t remember this one at all but then again, I don’t remember much of anything anymore.
Beautiful finish! It’s fun to use stash fabric for projects and even better when they were a bargain find.
Oh Val! It’s absolutely lovely. I’m in awe of the beauty you and your Mom create with your quilts.
Blessings and hugs,
What a beautiful quilt! I love the nine patches and friendship stars and the way it all comes together. While I agree that a darker pine would have stood out more, I sort of like the faded look of the pink. It gives it a vintage look.
What a lovely finish–the quilt is beautiful! Great job!
I think the pink is just fine, it gives it a dreamy look!
Oh my gosh I am getting a comment. I love all of your quilts
I love the lighter pink. This quilt has a very vintage feel and the light pink works perfectly, in my opinion.
